Organisations of all sizes are exposed to cyber threats, but many would not survive a serious cyber incident. Consequently, a director’s role in building cyber resilience has never been more critical in today’s technological climate.

Cyber risk is receiving increased focus at a governance level, with a clear trend of increasing expectations on directors and their legal advisors from regulators, customers and the community. This is primarily due to the widespread recognition of cyber threats as a ‘whole of business risk’ with the potential to seriously damage a business’ operations, finances, customer base and reputation. 

While cyber resilience can be complex, many aspects are surprisingly similar to other types of business risk familiar to directors and their legal advisors. This course unpacks the topic of cyber resilience in an accessible and actionable manner designed to support the key role that directors - and their advisors - play in fostering cyber resilience in organisations of all sizes.
